Bug or a Bump? Living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Listen 28 min

Howie Mandel, Roseanne Barr, Justine Timberlake and . . .  our guest  Naomi  have something  in  common; they  live  with  obsessive-compulsive disorder. 

This mental disability is becoming better known, offering less stigma and more hope to those learning to negotiate the anxiety and compulsions of O.C.D.  Naomi trains a humorous eye on overcoming the fear of raccoons in her closet, cockroaches and the touch of dirty laundry.

Hosted and produced by Shelley Berman.

Evidence of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by Michael Showalter

Is Michael demonstrating his own OCD, or the OCD shared by humans who build such cities?  Hmm…
